Huddersfield vs Manchester City Breakdown
Goals from Danilo (18′), Raheem Sterling (54′) and Leroy Sane (56′) continue to lead the way as the Manchester City men have now scored 22 times in their last four games.
This was Huddersfield’s first game since David Wagner (manager) departed. The match program had 23 pages dedicated to his tenure and a video message from him was played to fans during halftime. Mark Hudson was temporarily replacing David Wagner, but was ultimately unable to spark Huddersfield to life.
Another blank game means they’ve only scored 13 Premier League goals this season. That’s the fewest in the top four divisions! They remain 10 points from safety.
Manchester City came into this game having scored 99 goals in all competitions. Not surprisingly, it took them just 18 minutes to reach three figures.
Danilo drove forward from full-back and struck a shot that took a wicked deflection off Christopher Schindler, with the ball flying into the corner of the net.
The game started to drift for the remainder of the first half but Manchester’s manager, Pep Guardiola, must’ve spoke inspiring words at the break as the team came out with renewed energy.
The champions shifted from first gear to fifth in a devastating two minutes of ruthless attacking. Sterling and then Sane both found the net.
Sterling finished off a flowing move instigated by Kevin De Bruyne and assisted by Sane.
Only 90 seconds later Sergio Aguero nodded through Sane, who remained calm and skillfully finished from close range.
The three-goal lead allowed Manchester City to play comfortably for the rest of the match. And unfortunately, Huddersfield had no answers.
Man of the match: Leroy Sane
“The first 20 minutes he looked dangerous and then after the break he came to life, setting up Sterling and then scoring himself. He’s a player – as a right-back – I would hate coming up against.” — Gary Neville
Leroy Sane floated in and out of the game but whenever he was leading the charge, Sane took Huddersfield apart. He has now scored seven goals and grabbed nine assists in his last 17 Premier League appearances.
